AMSTERDAM, Sep. 22, 2021 – Prove, the modern way for businesses to enable their customers to prove their identities with just a phone, announced today that its award-winning behavioral biometrics technology, which enables businesses to replace vulnerable passwords and one-time passcodes, is now available in 195 countries around the globe. This unique behavioral authentication product gives companies an advanced way to authenticate users passively based on their natural motion. The announcement was made today at the Money20/20 Europe conference in Amsterdam.

“Digital consumers increasingly expect frictionless digital experiences. Prove enables businesses to offer modern identity authentication techniques so that consumers have choices in how they prove their identity,” said Rodger Desai, CEO of Prove. “Prove’s behavioral biometrics solutions enable companies to authenticate customers in a completely passive way, even if the customer gets a new phone, which mitigates the risk of account takeovers such as SIM swap attacks, which are responsible for massive losses and add friction to legitimate consumers. Behavioral biometrics also reduce the reliance on one-time passcodes (OTPs) and passwords. For years, the industry has talked about a need to kill passwords and OTPs. Prove’s behavioral biometrics has made that a reality, and now authentication can drive revenue, not prevent it.”

Prove’s behavioral biometrics identify the person behind the device based on an individual’s natural motion. These breakthrough technologies include:

  • GaitAuth™, which identifies a person by the way they walk. The technology silently and passively authenticates a user based on their unique gait with very high accuracy.
  • MotionAuth™, which identifies the person by the way they move, thereby silently and passively authenticating a user based on unique motion, habits, behaviors, and other contextual and environmental signals.
  • PushAuth™, which is an adaptive system for one-tap passwordless login or step-up authentication—a more secure alternative to SMS and voice OTPs with near-zero friction.


Prove’s behavioral biometrics technology runs in the background and works without the need for the customer to interact with mobile apps, allowing for the reduction in authentication challenges by passively authenticating the customer based on their unique motion with privacy and consent by design.


These new capabilities can be added to existing legacy authentication techniques to create orchestrated, adaptive authentication where consumers can choose the manner in which they prove their identity. Additionally, Prove has made these modern authentication technologies available worldwide via a mobile SDK for both iOS and Android and will add browser-based techniques for clients that prefer not to use SDKs.
